Eligibility criteria - Rénoclimat

Eligibility criteria

Eligible participants

The Rénoclimat program targets owners (individuals or businesses) of homes located in the province of Québec who wish to renovate for the purpose of improving their energy efficiency.

It is possible to participate in the Rénoclimat program several times for the same home. In participating many times, you can receive financial assistance at every stage of your energy renovation project. Take advantage of this feature!

Eligible homes

Here are the different types of housing eligible under the Rénoclimat program:

  • Single family homes (including semi-detached, row or mobile homes)
  • Duplexes
  • Triplexes
  • Multiple-unit residential buildings with 4 to 20 units. (New!)  

The home must respect the following characteristics:

  • have no more than 3 storeys above the ground;
  • cover a maximum surface area of 600 m2 (ground footprint);
  • have a finished and intact building envelope;
  • be built and be inhabited for at least 12 months prior to participation in the program;
  • be habitable year round;
  • have at least 50% of its total floor area used for residential purposes;
  • be located in the province of Québec.  

The home must also meet the following criteria:

  • be built on permanent foundations;
  • include a heating system that can maintain the indoor temperature of the home at 21 C°;
  • have AC electrical  input power distributed throughout the home;
  • have drinking water supplied by the municipality or a private source;
  • have sewage services supplied by the municipality, a private septic tank or a sewage holding tank;
  • have at least one bedroom, one bathroom and a kitchen area with a sink and a regular oven in working order.


Some homes that respect all the above-mentioned criteria and characteristics can nonetheless fail to be eligible under the Rénoclimat program (for example: homes that are not sufficiently air tight or are too large, buildings with very unusual layouts).

If it is impossible to conduct the blower door test during the energy evaluation of your home, it will be considered non-eligible under the Rénoclimat program.

If you have doubts about the eligibility of your home, please discuss them with the Rénoclimat energy efficiency advisor when you schedule your appointment.
